Audrey and John were a pleasure to work with. Libby and I decided on a package that included a bridal session, and 8 hours of coverage on our wedding day. We just picked up our photo book this week, and are thrilled with the finished product. Leading up to the wedding, Audrey... Read More and John were available for multiple consultations and had great feedback that helped us finalize our timeline. John was flexible when Libby rescheduled her bridal session, and met her out in Driftwood without hesitation. The day of the wedding, they did a great job of being assertive when they needed to be, and the rest of the time they were flies on the wall. We are amazed at the number of genuine moments that they captured throughout the day. It was really difficult to decide which shots to use in albums for our parents because we had over 600 quality, edited photos from the wedding day alone. When we were considering vendors, we definitely felt some sticker shock while comparing In Your Eyes to other options in Austin. Ultimately we realized that once the day was over, that our vows and the pictures would be the only things that would stay with us for a lifetime. With that in mind, we prioritized our photographer at the top of our budget. Needless to say, we have no regrets with our decision. If you decide to book Audrey and John, you can rest assured that you are in good hands.

I could not have asked for a better experience with John and Audrey!

These photographers have an eye for beauty that is totally unmatched, and this was revealed through the quality of my wedding photos.

In Your Eyes Photography is absolutely incredible. At the top of my wedding importance list was pictures. I wanted perfect pictures and IYE’s fulfilled this wish. I’m so thankful my coworker recommended them, because all I was finding in my search for a photographer were... Read More portfolios of the same posed pictures over and over. I wanted candid, real life pictures and that’s what IYE’s gave us. The pictures are absolutely perfect and timeless. John, Audrey, and the team are super fun and easy to work with.

There’s something special about wedding photography. All it takes is one photograph—one image of a bride with her groom on their wedding day—to create a lifetime of memories. Memories for the bride and groom (of course), but also memories for their kin. Memories for their... Read More children as they look through albums over a family meal. Memories for a grandchild who sneaks into her grandmother’s bedroom with the sole purpose of staring at THAT wedding photo—the one where her well-dressed grandmother and grandfather are so young, so happy, and so in love. Wedding photography is special because it encapsulates everything we dream to be true about true love. It captures a moment so full of love it saturates the image, seeping through the page or screen right into our hearts. Audrey and John, you are these record makers. You are the ones seeing, shooting, and editing hundreds of images for couples that will last a lifetime, and I would trust no one else with this incredible responsibility. I first met John at the Austin Bridal Extravaganza. I was drawn to his booth by the candid photography displayed. When I got home, I researched In Your Eyes Photography online and found an article that Audrey wrote suggesting a list of questions that every couple should ask their potential wedding photographers. After completing my research, I reached out to John. He quickly responded, setting up a dinner meeting so that my fiancé and I could get to know him and Audrey better. By the end of the dinner, Audrey and John felt like old friends, and we had no doubts in our minds that they were the team we wanted. Flash-forward a month, and we were taking our engagement photographs with Audrey on South Congress Avenue. We were a bit nervous about it, but she eased us into it. She was so creative, fun, and playful that we had an absolute blast. We even used one of our engagement photos on the invitation to our wedding! And then, it was our wedding day. Audrey and John were amazing. They captured the most intimate and timeless moments of our wedding. We had bridal party portraits, family portraits, and a multitude of candid moments from our ceremony and reception. In addition, John and Audrey captured a long exposure sparkler photograph for us and another one featuring twinkle lights. Everything felt so magical and easy. We didn’t worry about anything. We knew that Audrey and John were capturing every important moment. Waiting for our edited photographs was the hardest part. When they were finally ready, we were invited to the In Your Eyes studio for our an unveiling. Audrey and John had setup mimosas, cheese, crackers and a ten-minute slideshow of our photographs. As the slideshow played, I cried. It was so beautiful and well produced. The photographs were well edited, and I could barely believe that those images were really ours. Looking at my photographs now—ten weeks after our wedding—I’m still tearing up. Each one holds such power. Transporting me back to that day—that moment—when my husband and I experienced Heaven on Earth. Wanting and needing for nothing. Surrounded by our closest family and friends. Everyone was happy. Everything was peaceful. Everything was perfect. Audrey and John captured photographs of my Heaven on Earth. It is with great gratitude, assurance, and respect that I recommend them to any couple who desires breathtakingly beautiful, timeless, and romantic wedding images. Thank you, Audrey and John, for everything.

Once I first shot with a digital SLR, I was hooked. I knew I had no choice but to shoot as often as possible. I shot my first wedding in 2011, and I loved being able to document so many emotions and beautiful candid moments for my couple. I booked more and more weddings and eventually left my successful legal career to photograph weddings full time. I have never been happier, and am absolutely passionate about creating amazing images for my clients. When I’m not working, I am planning my own wedding with my beautiful fiancée, Lauren, and playing our two adorable furry puppies.
